5 Drug-Developing Marijuana Stocks You Need to Know
Marijuana stocks, and the marijuana industry, for that matter, are on fire. The reason most marijuana stocks have doubled, tripled, or perhaps gone up by even more over the past year has to do with the changing tide in the public's opinion toward cannabis.
According to national pollster Gallup, 60% of Americans as of 2016 support the idea of legalizing pot across the country, which is more than double the approval rate from two decades prior. A similar poll from Quinnipiac University showed 59% support for a nationwide legalization and only 36% opposition to such a move.
High History: Cannabis in the Ancient World
When you walk into a cannabis dispensary, you notice the variety of products and extractions. Edibles, flower, concentrates and tinctures line the display cases. These medicinal and recreational products are just like the ones used during the Victorian times in America and Europe.
People throughout the ages have utilized cannabis in many forms, from tribal shamans to Victorian women. These ingestion methods and applications find their origin in the ancient world, where cannabis was used in medicine, magic, religion and recreation. These earliest civilizations cultivated and traded the psychoactive plant.
The ancients discovered cannabis in their search for ropes, textiles, foods and pharmaceuticals. Some varieties were not fit for fabric and rope, but their sticky psychotropic flowers had a better purpose. The plant was typically harvested and either juiced or smoked. Wine infusion, water extraction and fumigating the dried flower were the most common methods of ingestion. Recent archaeological evidence and surviving documents gives us a window into the historical use of cannabis.
Another 420 Smoke-In and Pot Giveaway on Capitol Hill
This year’s 4/20 weed giveaway, as well as a 4/24 smoke-in will be memorable. Just remember to wear comfortable shoes.
Here are a few things to consider: a) The location – Capitol Hill; b) recipients of the free joints – Congress members; and c) focus of the events – the White House and its collection of conservatives who not only disapprove of weed, they seem to actually hate it.
Unlike last year, there will be two separate April protests in Washington D.C., both sponsored by DCMJ, co-founded in 2013 by Adam Eidinger and Nikolas Schiller with the express purpose of changing the marijuana laws in the District of Columbia.
